CNCR NodLogo The following is based on the Nod campaign of Tiberian Dawn and might contradict canon.
GDI has left themselves open to the deadliest weapon of all, information. Our spies tell us the GDI base in your area contains an advanced attack helicopter, the Orca. Steal this weapon, then fly to the nearby village and destroy it. The attack will be blamed on GDI.
- Mission briefing

Orca Heist is one of the choices for the seventh Nod mission of Tiberian Dawn.


The Central African Republic had been chosen by GDI as a testing ground for their new Orca Assault Craft.

Kane devised a cunning, if ruthless plan and delegated its implementation to Seth. Nod forces would attack the GDI base near Bangassou and steal the base's Orca Assault Craft along with its Helipad. Having done so they would use that Orca to launch a false flag attack on a nearby village; because the Orca would still bear GDI colors, GDI would be held responsible for the atrocity.


Seth sent two groups of Nod soldiers to attack the GDI base. The first group consisted entirely of vehicles and was deployed on the plateau to the north-west of the base. The second group consisted mostly of infantry and was deployed to the north of the base, this group included the engineers that were to steal the Helipad.

Under the command of an unknown Nod commander this group proved successful even though the base was well-defended. Having stolen control of the Helipad, a Nod engineer flew the captured craft on multiple attack runs against the village which was to the north over a river. They did serious damage to the village and killed at least several people. When Seth was satisfied that sufficient damage had been done to the village, the Nod forces fled the vicinity of the base making it appear that GDI forces had actually successfully repelled them.


The destruction dealt to the village by the GDI aircraft caused a major scandal that undermined the GDI's reputation and convinced more people throughout Africa to rally to Nod's cause.

Particularly, it convinced the Central Africans that GDI bases would not bring security but would instead bring massacres. The government and people turned against the GDI and GDI forces were expelled. Faced with the threat of an imminent Nod invasion the government of Central Africa Republic finally declared itself in favor of Nod.


The player starts out with vehicles, infantry and 4 engineers. Do not lose the engineers otherwise nod cannot steal the orca. Destroy the guard towers with light tanks and GDI armor with bikes and tanks. Defend the engineers with the infantry especially from minigunners and grenadiers. Once the base is captured fly the orca to attack the village but watch out for the rocket soldier which will resist the Orcas missiles. Destroy the village and the mission is a win.

Note: If either the engineers all die from GDI forces or the Orca is destroyed the mission is a failure.
